The lesson from Japan:

If you don't get your debt under control, you have to use your central bank to cap yields to avoid a debt crisis, causing big Yen devaluation. If the Euro zone doesn't find a way to bring high periphery debt levels down, the Euro will follow the same path. Source: Robin Brooks

China’s economic miracle is ending, leaving President Xi Jinping w/a challenge none of his predecessors faced:

How to govern after the boom. In a democracy, the gloomy mood in the country would spell trouble for the leader. Since Ronald Reagan in 1980, US presidential candidates have posed a simple question to voters: Are you better off today than you were four years ago? When the answer is “no,” it’s time for the White House incumbent to pack their bags. Source: Bloomberg Economics

SEC approves 8 Ethereum ETFs including BlackRock and Fidelity.

But ETF issuers must have their S-1 registration statements go effective before trading can begin. It's unclear how long this process will take but some analysts are speculating that it could take weeks. In a stunning reversal, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced on Thursday that it has approved eight applications for spot Ethereum ETFs, effectively green-lighting Ethereum trading on Wall Street. The following funds were approved in the filing: the converted Grayscale Ethereum Trust, the Bitwise Ethereum ETF, iShares Ethereum Trust, VanEck Ethereum Trust, ARK/21 Shares Ethereum ETF, Invesco Galaxy Ethereum ETF, Fidelity Ethereum Fund, and Franklin Ethereum ETF. When will the spot Ethereum ETFs begin trading? It won't be tomorrow. Bloomberg ETF expert James Seyffart suggested in a tweet that it could be a "couple weeks" before the fund managers' S-1 documents are approved to enable trading. Source: Decrypt
